10 interesting Google products you don’t know about

Google has so many different products that it becomes pretty hard to keep track of them over time. Some are worth being reminded of, though, because there are several useful Google products that are flying below the radar, unknown to the vast majority of users out there.

How do we know this? A couple of weeks ago we here at Pingdom wrote about Google’s tendency to keep many of its products in perpetual beta, and while doing the research for that post we kept finding Google products that we either didn’t know about or had forgotten that they existed.

So, we decided to share these with you.

This post lists 10 interesting Google products that you are likely to either have forgotten about or simply never knew existed.

Google Mobilizer

Via the Google Mobilizer page you can make any Web page mobile-friendly.

Audio Ads

A radio advertising program available through the AdWords interface. It reaches 1,600 FM and AM radio stations in the US.

Mashup Editor

An editor incorporating syntax highlighting and debugging for creating Web mashups and simple applications.

Ride Finder

A taxi, limousine and shuttle search service that uses the real-time position of vehicles in 14 US cities. It uses the Google Maps interface and any car service that wishes to participate.

Accessible Search

A specialized search engine for the blind and visually impaired that prioritizes accessible web sites.

Movies

A specialized search engine for finding film show times near a user-defined location as well as film reviews compiled from several different sources.

SMS

A text messaging service that Google offers in several countries, including the US, Japan, Canada, India and China. It lets you send search queries and receive results via SMS.

Gapminder

An online application for viewing data trends for countries and geographic regions in an interactive, visual manner.

Special Searches

Search within these special topics: Linux, BSD, Apple Macintosh, Microsoft, or the US Government.

GOOG-411

Google’s directory assistance service, available free of charge from any telephone in the US and Canada.

These products are just the tip of the iceberg. You can view a list of Google’s regular products here and Google Labs products here, and then there’s the list of Google products on Wikipedia to round things off. Happy browsing, there’s a LOT to go through!

The question is if even Sergey Brin and Larry Page are able to keep track of all the Google products out there…

Any other cool or useful, almost unknown Google products that you like but we didn’t include here? Let us know in the comments! 🙂
